Dear Alberto Ríos from Lauren

Dear Alberto Ríos,

What inspired you to be a poet? Do you travel to different places for poetry? I think that you are very encouraging to me because sometimes I have a hard time giving up stuff when I don’t want to. For example, my phone. I love being on my phone, but I have to give it to my parents because they are sometimes strict. So thank you for encouraging me to give people things.
